[DEC. 23, 2004]  CHICAGO -- The Illinois Arts Council is now accepting applications from artists and performing arts companies for inclusion in the 2006-2008 Arts-in-Education Residency Program Artists Roster. The application deadline is Jan. 18, 2005.

The residency program provides support to Illinois not-for-profit organizations for professional artist residencies lasting from two weeks to six months. For this program, organizations must select an artist from the program's roster. Artists can increase their visibility to Illinois not-for-profit organizations and expand their opportunities to work as an artist-in-residence by applying to be part of the roster.

Professional artists in the disciplines of creative writing, dance, interdisciplinary arts, media, music or theater, and visual arts and performing arts companies in the disciplines of dance, music, theater or interdisciplinary arts are eligible to apply to be part of the roster.

Artists must be available for residencies between Oct.1, 2006, and Aug. 31, 2008, and may not be enrolled in a degree-seeking or certificate-granting program of any kind during that period.

Not-for-profit status is not a requirement for this program.
